#### TheCorrespondence of Michael Faraday

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1993; US$ 175.00Volume 2 covers the 1830s, a period when Faraday pursued the consequences of his discovery of electromagnetic induction and revised entirely the theories of electrochemistry and the nature of electricity.His correspondents include scientists of the day as well as antiquaries, military men, artists and politicians. more...

#### Mathematical Essays

World Scientific Publishing Company 1983; US$ 70.00This is a collection of research papers published in various mathematical journals by friends, colleagues and former students of Professor Buchin Su in honor of his 80th birthday and 50th year of educational work.Professor Su was born in 1902 in Pingyang County, Zhejiang Province, People's Republic of China. He received the degree of Bachelor of... more...

#### A Festschrift for Vernon Hughes

World Scientific Publishing Company 1992; US$ 79.00The contents of this book are derived from a celebration of the 70th birthday of Vernon W Hughes. Professor Hughes' career has touched on several areas in modern physics ranging from precision measurements of the fundamental properties of atoms to measurements of spin structure functions of the proton via deep inelastic muon scattering at the... more...

#### TheCorrespondence of Michael Faraday

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 1991; US$ 175.00Volume 1 covers Faraday's early years up to his discovery of electromagnetic induction in 1831. Other scientific and technical topics covered include Faraday's discovery of electromagnetic rotations (in 1821), the liquefaction of gases (in 1823) and the long series of experiments in the latter part of the 1820s to improve optical glass. more...

#### Integration - A Functional Approach

Springer Basel 2010; US$ 79.99This volume covers Lebesgue integration and its generalizations from Daniell's point of view, modified by the use of seminorms. The integration of functions, as opposed to the measuring of sets, is posited as the main purpose of measure theory. more...

#### Annual Reviews of Computational Physics Iii

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 53.00This series of books covers all areas of computational physics, collecting together reviews where a newcomer can learn about the state of the art regarding methods and results. Articles are submitted by e-mail before deadlines which are kept by the editor.Biologically motivated simulations, glasses, world-record molecular dynamics, deposition on surfaces,... more...

#### Non-locality and Possible World

De Gruyter 2006; US$ 0.00This book uses the formal semantics of counterfactual conditionals to analyze the problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics. Counterfactual conditionals (subjunctive conditionals) enter the analysis of quantum entangled systems in that they enable us to precisely formulate the locality condition that purports to exclude the existence... more...

#### The Necessary Structure of the All-pervading Aether

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 0.00In this book I investigate the necessary structure of the aether ? the stuff that fills the whole universe. Some of my conclusions are. 1. There is an enormous variety of structures that the aether might, for all we know, have. 2. Probably the aether is point-free. 3. In that case, it should be distinguished from Space-time, which is either... more...

#### Commemorating the Past and Looking Towards the Future (Ocpa 2000)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 138.00This book is not just a conference proceedings covering the full spectrum of physics disciplines. It is also a historic retrospective on the past generation of giants in Chinese physics. It covers the historical tributes by Nobel Laureates Lee and Yang and others to the life and works of Professors Ta-You Wu, Chien-Shiung Wu and Xie Xi-de. In the words... more...

#### Contemporary Problems in Mathematical Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 202.00The COPROMAPH Conference series has now evolved into a significant international arena where fundamental concepts in mathematical and theoretical physics and their physics applications can be conceived, developed and disseminated. Basic ideas for addressing a variety of contemporary problems in mathematical and theoretical physics are presented in... more...
